Are you sure you are not a result of incorrect bios/ cluster size causing corruption ?

Re: RF Interferance.

I had the same problem with interferance. When the LED lightbulb was on my Xbox was squealing (I blame the foxconn power supply). I've ordered the Xbox Protection Cord (X800925-100). I didn't have very high hopes, but to my surprise — it works! No more annoying noise, problem fixed. :mrgreen: For a...

Re: How to wipe all and install a fresh Dash?

An installer dvd like hexen, slayers or AID is your best bet.

the only real catch is making sure you format to the correct cluster size if you have a large hdd.

there is plenty of guides around.

you wont find coinops on here best to go ask on their forum for help there.

Re: Help with xbox xecuter 2 mod crash. How can I put it stock ?

I think the passcode in hexen is " A B Y X " that will then allow you to format and do a fresh install with hexen. If it boots the default dashboard then you must not have the bios pointing to an alternate dash to boot to so it boots the default dash instead. You could try flashing a new bios that y...

Re: Need help with Tsop recovery after bad flash..

you don't need a socket if you use a dil32 eeprom or plcc eeprom as you can easily hand solder as stated above by MrMajst3r. For example a AT 29C020 or a 29F002 would work and are easily solderable. you could use a ir window eprom like a 27c2001 (2Mbit ) 27c4001 (4M bit) but you need an external pro...

I have not seen such a guide but something I will say the best thing to do is prep it properly by sanding it or us a plastic etching primer so that the paint will stick.

Re: HDD spinning up too slow?

error 9 is not a very common error I would try to replace the dvd drive ide cable from the other box and test it see if it has the same faults.

you could also swap the hdd's over ?
